“Awesome !!”
Reviewed December 31, 2013

Our guide (Keeva) was friendly, dynamic and full of energy (despite the weather). We learn a lot during the 1h30 of walk.
Moreover her accent was really easy to understand.
Thanks to her.

“The city came alive”
Reviewed October 30, 2013

I went on this tour one Saturday morning and it was one of the best I have ever been on! Keeva was our guide and she was friendly, funny, and informative, and backed up the idea of the Irish being great 'craic'. it was interesting and fun without leaving out any details, adults and children alike enjoyed the tour. The city came alive as each building, cathedral and arch told its story to us, and what a story everything has! The colors of Galway are so beautiful in the fall! Would recommend for anybody visiting Galway, the city is great and I love Ireland!

“More to Galway than a small University City”
Reviewed October 23, 2013

Didn't take long to discover there was so much history to Galway. What is before your eyes and hidden away was all covered in this very enjoyable two hour walking tour. It is really not a big walk for those that don't like to walk as Galway is really pretty small and lots of the history is with about 10 minute walk of Eyre Square. After the tour I went back to many of the places to explore further and enjoyed both guided and independent. The tour I took was free but the young lady who was a university student as well really deserved and got a tip. She was outstanding in keeping everyone interested in her history lesson.

“Nice way to meet Galway”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

I really enjoyed. I could learn about History and Irish culture with the lovely guide Laura. It was a great walk through the city. Laura, was absolutely amazing! The weather was so incredible, which just added to the beauty of the city. Definitely worth it to get an overview. Galway city from past to present day history..took us to all of the main areas and some quieter areas you wouldn't normally see if not use to the area..over all I came away extremely happy..
